Organizing a union was just the first step ...

Organizing a union was just the first step ... r1 ... I sent you this message last week - but I'm not sure you saw it.
In the last seven days, 4,718 of us have sent messages in support of the year-long struggle of these workers in the USA for dignity at work.
Please take a moment to read on, show your support, and spread the word.
Thanks very much!

On June 2017, workers at Wendt Corporation, a scrap metal recycling plant based in Buffalo, New York (USA) successfully fought for respect and dignity by forming a union, joining the Ironworkers Union. That's the good news.

The bad news is that a year later, the company refuses to negotiate in good faith with the union for the first collective bargaining agreement. And Wendt has also launched an anti-union campaign, harassing union members and threatening to lay-off workers.

The global union federation Building and Wood Workers' International (BWI), to which the Ironworkers are affiliated, has launched a global appeal for solidarity with the workers at Wendt.

We are calling on the company to stop the anti-union campaign and to negotiate with the workers.

Please take a few seconds and send off your message to support these workers:

In the current climate in the US, workers show great courage in taking the decision to organize into a trade union. Let's mobilize many thousands of our fellow union members to show those workers in Buffalo that they are not alone. Share this campaign - spread the word!

Thank you.

Eric Lee
